ABCL 0.26.1 released

On behalf of the developers of ABCL (Armed Bear Common Lisp) I'm glad to be able to announce the 0.26.1 release.

ABCL is a Common Lisp implementation implemented in Java and running on the JVM, featuring both an interpreter and a compiler. The compiler targets the JVM directly meaning that its output is runnable JVM bytecode. The fact that ABCL is written in Java allows for relatively easy embedding in larger
applications. For integration with existing applications ABCL implements JSR 223: Java scripting API.

This release features - among lots of other things - a major reduction in the number of failures in the ANSI test suite: dropping from 26 to 16 failures on some systems (of 21699 tests in total).  Additionally, ABCL now runs Hunchentoot and several other packages from the top downloads from Quicklisp. Please read the release notes and the CHANGES file for more. Version 0.26.0 has not been released due to regressions fixed in this version.
